Programming the Inepro SCR708
How to program your Inepro reader to specific outputs or restrict to specific technologies
The Inepro SCR708 offers a huge amount of features and flexibility not seen in any other reader on the market. Using the Analyser and the Programmer tools you can, within minutes create a custom firmware which suits your exact needs and then quickly roll this out to multiple units.
First off plug your reader in and wait for it to automatically install (you will most likely need admin rights if you don’t have these as default on your login profile).
It’s just one of those things. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. And when you’re signing a potential client into your building, that process will already have started. With that said, therefore, it’s worth bearing in mind that the ID security procedure you operate can really make a difference.
How can an ID card system affect first impressions?
An ID card system has impact because:
1. It can enhance your organisation’s professional image
An ID card system immediately implies that a business is substantial enough to warrant one. It also implies th..

If you have a single or a few licences but need to be able to use these on various machines then using a licence dongle is often the best solution to this rather than purchasing additional licences.

We appreciate that cleaning and maintenance are never much fun however if you’ve gone to the expense of investing in an ID card printer then you’ll need it to be running in tip top condition whenever you need it.
Due to the very nature of plastic cards, readers, printers and the ribbons they use there will be a naturally occurring build-up of dirt that must be cleaned away on a regular basis.
Dust, dirt, fingerprint oils, magnetic oxides and environmental contaminants will inevitably lead to errors in the printing and processing function of your equipment such as:
What is a card printing bureau?
The ID Card Centre bureau is a service that we offer to manage the printing and encoding of ID cards, access control cards, technology cards and name badges on behalf of companies, organisations and individuals. There are many reasons for needing to use a bureau service such as not owning the correct printing and encoding equipment or not having the time or man power to handle the job in house.
There is no job too big or small for the bureau to cope with – we regularly handle print jobs of single cards up to thousands of cards.
In fact we’..
1. to write (written material) again, esp changing the words or form
Rewrite, re-write or re write? However you spell it, it still does exactly what it says – it allows you to rewrite a previously printed ID card or name badge.
How does rewrite work?
The revolutionary rewrite technology doesn’t require any fancy inks or ribbons, but simply uses heat to change the colour of the surface of the card, thus printing any text and images (in monochrome only) – including photographs - on to the surface of the card. Reapplication of heat will then remove the ‘prin..
If your ID card printer is coming to the end of its life or it’s no longer fit for purpose and you want to upgrade then you don’t have to scrap it.
Save your printer from ending up in the skip or taking up space in the back of a store cupboard by trading it in against a new one – and getting money off in the process!
Your old printer will be sent back to the manufacturer, where it will be dismantled and stripped down in to component parts and sent off for recycling. The plastic casings typically go on to become other plastic goods such as garden furniture and even car parts! ..
As with all print, to ensure your finished piece looks exactly as you intended it to, there are various things you need to consider when thinking about the design of your name badges.
1. What does it need to do?
What is the main purpose of the badge? Is it for detailed identification of the person which needs to contain a photo, personal information and any permits or restrictions? For example to show they can access a certain area on-site or have the necessary licence or authorisation to carry out a particular task. Or is it for quick identification such as a networkin..
